IM PLAYIN discuss a recent video declaring that 'Call of Duty is Dead', and the future of the franchise as a whole.
Dead? No. Dying? Yes.
Well RE7 sold less than the previous numbered entry. By that logic does that mean Resident Evil as a whole is a dying franchise?
RE7 is great. Infinity Warfare is crap. That's my logic.
Yet many enjoyed Infinite Warfare
@The infected then your logic is stupid
RE7 sales are still going up to early to tell
but it will do well in japan for sales
Nah, people are holding out until they get their hands on that PSVR.
I'm not going to defend it as some amazing game, but from a purely sales perspective it was still the top selling console game last year, despite releasing in November. Even considering the whole "Battlefield 1 trailer is the most liked and Infinite Warfare trailer is the most disliked" thing didn't affect that. Sales were down from the previous year, but I'd hardly call the franchise dying.. maybe dying creatively, but not to the point it won't be out every year.
Didn't we already get an article like this a few days ago with the same topic?
A series that consistently still ends up being one of the highest selling games each year cannot even be considered dead.
You wanna know what a dead franchise looks like? Look no further than Medal of Honor.
Of course it isn't.
Everyone lives in a bubble online. If you don't hear about something that falls within your tailored feeds/news or your social circles, you just assume it's dead.
Nope, its like cheese, there will always be demand for it
I like cheese
Most people do including me, but not on everything and not the same type of cheddar over and over again ;)
We should probably check with the guy who said Pewdiepie is dead. There's a lot of dead things apparently.
Dead, what? How, the game sold probably more than any game last year not named GTA
No, it's not dead. It's certainly dying a little bit more year after year. But there's still millions of people buying each semi new interation every year.
what with the no love for this game ?????
call of duty was the first and all the rest copy and paste there games
its not dead or dying
Started their descent when they got rid of 4 player split screen. People with friends like to talk shit on the couch over pizza and beer. Still a fun game with a good campaign.
As I have said, a game that serves the part of the community with the lowest intellect and attention span can never be dead.
